Transcript of Literary Terms: Allegory and Allusion

Literary Terms: Allegory and Allusion
Allegory Example
One very known examples of allegories is the book Animal Farm by George Orwell. In Animal Farm, the animals way of life is meant to represent the leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917.
An allegory is a literary term that signifies a theoretical principal that is meant to convey more than it actually is (it has a hidden meaning). They can often indicate palpable objects in the real world.
An allusion (another literary term) is the casual or indirect mentioning of an occurrence in history, the arts, mythology, or even religion.
Allusion Examples
There are many examples of allusion. Many examples can be found in the cartoon The Simpsons. In one episode Principal Skinner turns to his window and looks out at an old, frightening house and while doing so, he talks about a horrible relationship with his mother.This is an allusion to the Norman Bates character in the movie Psycho because Norman Bates has a similar relationship with his mother as skinner did with his mother.
